One frustrating aspect of rural living is the dust that is often produced by traffic on gravel roads. The Transportation department offers help in abating commonly-occurring road dust that can be a safety hazard as well as a nuisance for rural residents.
A FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT THE DEADLINE FOR DUST CONTROL APPLICATIONS IS THE LAST FRIDAY OF MARCH EACH YEAR.

The dust control program allows residents to apply for dust control on rural roads in front of residences. Dust control involves the application of a calcium chloride agent to gravel roads that cause particles to stick together into larger chunks that do not spread so easily via wind or vehicle.

The MD dust control program typically begins in May and is completed by end of June, weather and road conditions permitting. Please complete and submit the application below to apply for inclusion into the MD's dust control program.
